Nullriver continually says they haven't abandoned the software but with a (maybe) twice-yearly update schedule at best, it may as well be abandoned. If it works for you, great, but if it doesn't you can expect exactly *zero* support. They've been this way for years, as near as I can tell. Nullriver, if you are reading this, your coders are ok but your customer service is absolutely horrible.

I hope to change this review when I am finally contacted back by support@nullriver, but to this moment none of my three emails sent over the last 10 days have been responded to. so I am forced to write a bad review. I downloaded Medialink to my 1st Gen Intel iMac 10 days ago. It installed with no problems. Once installed I paid for the activation code and registered the product. I did this before I fully tested out the software. This was my mistake. Once registered I went in to the other room to check the ps3 and found the system was reporting a DLNA Protocol Error 7531. But there is no information on their website regarding this issue. With this error by ps3 does not recognize any files on my computer at all, no music no movies no pictures no file structure. I have emailed Nullriver 3 times and never heard anything back from them. not even a "we got your email but cannot respond at this time, please be patient". Help! I would like to use this software and not have to go back to Nullriver and demand my monies back. Help, Help!

Yes, it is difficult to get in touch with the developer. I sent a firm letter to the customer service folks this morning and they responded. They resent my registration info and it worked......a great application.....I hope the developer keeps up.

I paid for this app 7 days again and still haven't received a SN. When I emailed them they told me to wait. As a Mac user for 20 years and now my own children all have Macs, I find it totally unacceptable to have to wait on a piece of shareware that could of easily been automated if the developer used Kagi or some other sort of cart system. I needed this software to convert some shows before I left on a trip (long car ride for the kids), and here I am almost done with my trip and still no SN and no answer from the developer. My suggestion is if you want to support good software developers, find another piece of software to support. This was a total 'take the money and run' situation.

Overall, I would say this is the best PSP app on the Mac... It takes a little getting used to (some things are a little too automated), but it works well & the video Quality it produces on the PSP is pretty good. It's also well integrated with the iApps (though don't expect protected music or movies to work) On the downside, though the app is supposed to be universal, the encoders themselves (to convert movies) are PPC, resulting in subpar performance on Intel Macs. I manually updated them in the App package with Universal versions of the same app (packaged in various other apps) and encoding speed nearly doubled... Food for thought :)

Dear customers, It has been brought to our attention that several users did not receive replies to support requests. We are working on ironing out any such issues and we have taken steps to improve our technical support services. We receive many requests daily, including ones that require numerous replies and it has been difficult for us to reply within the same day. We are developing a new system to help us ensure faster support and we are also hiring additional support staff. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers. Please understand that we are a growing company and we will be doing our best to provide our services to you. If you have not received a reply via technical support, please e-mail me directly at: mrogov@nullriver.com and I will do my best to help you get any issues resolved quickly. Further, there have been rumors of Nullriver Software having stopped developing PSPWare -- I assure you this is incorrect. We are in fact working on a major update for PSPWare and adding support for the PS3 (you heard it here first!). Please, in the future, refer to our web site for updates on our products and company and not forums where misinformation is often spread. PSPWare at its current stage is a very popular and highly rated product. We believe we have a good working milestone out right now, and that is why there are no current minor updates. We are working on bigger updates. Thank you for your attention, Maksim Rogov President Nullriver, Inc.

This was a fantastic app back in early 2006 but is now AbandonWare, as the developer has left it to stagnate for many many months now. Their own forums are rife with people asking what is going on, and no answer at all. It saddens me to say it, as I really liked PSPWare once, but - DON'T spend any money on this app, as it will be largely wasted.

This app is now old hat. The developers refuse to include features that the customers ask for. • NO AVC support. While the pc users have had it for quite some time. Thanks. If you look on their forums they seem to be dead set against adding the feature, considering as feature bloat. Idiots. It's a supported sony format and we want to use it. Thanks again. • ERASES MEM STICK EVERY TIME you sync. F*cking dumb. You have to reset what you want on the card every-time. What if you just added one thing? Ludicrous. • GREAT psp encoding. that's all i use this for now, i don't even bother syncing anymore, its no longer important. • NOT AS FAST AS EARLIER VERSIONS. Dudes are getting lazy, or what? Many more movies now require the SLOW AS HELL quicktime conversion to be processed- even on my dual 2.5 the sh*t is slow as hell- what gives? the process used to be downright zippy back on a dual 142 g4. CMON!!! All i ask for is proper AVC support, better conversion speed, and getting rid of the aforementioned 'idiot' erase everything first' method. CMON!!!

Its good for syncing music and videos only if you want to limit yourself to PSPWare and a single computer. If you are like me using two computers, then everytime you connect the psp to any of the computer the memstick contents gets deleted. So lets say I sync my music at home so I could listen to them on my way to work. Then I sync my PSP on my work computer, voila, no more music for my way home. There is no AVC encoding, and no PMP encoding which should be very easy cause it uses ffmpeg for encoding. MP4 Encoding is slow! No extra picture features (resize, crop) etc etc. More badthings is that you can't sync to any chosen directory.. it only the itunes playlists. So putting music from other directories is a hassle. One more missing feature is that it can't let u sync with any kinda filetype. Its limited to some types and hardcoded directories. Lastly, they don't update it so often and the jump from 2.0 too 2.5 meant nothing.

Just perfect for the price. It does convert .avi files and it works perfectly on the PSP. Just a question: can you add just one item on your psp... or do you have to sync everything everytime ? Anyway, this a great soft. I love it.

This incredible software saved me a ton of cash! I was going to buy an iPod photo so I could carry around my beautiful family AND my music... Now I can carry home videos too! If you have a Mac and a PSP, there is no reason to buy an iPod. Unless of course you WANT to carry 10000 songs with you... a 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo will only hold about 150 songs but that's more than enough for me. For $100 and some change, you can have a 1G stick and this software and have the same functionality as an iPod Photo. And oh yeah, play games, watch movies, surf the web, chat, etc... Hands down, the best purchase I have EVER made for my PSP. Suggestion for the developer: Resize photos to max width before syncing... also, add an error message when you try to sync an AAC file. (Or not, considering the v2.0 firmware will support AAC encoding!) -Brian

Have to agree with the posts below, Sony are ripping us off big time, where is the official PSP manager application from Sony??? For a device that costs this much I would expect thsi sort of software to come on a CD with it, or be downloadable form Sony say when you register your product for warranty purposes, my mobile phone has more support. Good luck to the developers with this tool, it rocks!

Perfect. THE best solution for getting movies (or any data, really) on my Duo card to be played on my PSP. I've made more than my fair share of PC users green with envy as they struggle with encoding with no less than three separate applications and tooling around with folder and file names so the PSP will read it correctly. Now, if only the developers could make Sony less evil with their Duo pricing. What a rip-off! And while their at it make my two hour battery life a bit longer too! Because as far as I can tell Sony is the only one not pulling their weight here. Excellent work, guys! Top Notch!

Doesn't work with Tiger Server. It will sync and run as expected - but video encodes of various types ONLY give me Incompatible Data on my PSP. Other than this - LOVE the product. Emory Lundberg from PowerPage.org gave it a rave.

2.0.5 seems to mess up 16:9 movie conversion - it letterboxes them. I think longer testing periods between releases would be beneficial with this software.

Ack -- the 231 build returned a crash into Movies. I think we got it this time! So we'll post an updated build, 2.3.1 (build 241) shortly -- it is recommended you update as this will greately improve stability in the Movies section. If you experience any more crashing in Movies -- let us know. Our apologies for all of these updates, but we want to keep PSPWare as usable as possible at all times. *** If you've downloaded 2.3.1 (241) please re-download -- sorry!

Fantastic little program thats miles better than the competition! I've encoded about 100 films with it and about 250 TV rips without problems. I just wish they could provide some kind of categorization of the Movies tab so that I could identify things easily. As it is, its just a big long list of everything I have encoded which makes finding things a pain. Can we have some kind of optional virtual directory structure of the Movies tab for a future release?

Excellent software. Easy to setup (hooks right into iTunes and iPhoto), easy to use (detects the PSP upon connection and syncs). Loads the PSP with photos, music, and videos that are compatible with it (JPEG, MP3, and MP4 video) as well as backs up your saved games from the memory stick. If you've got a PSP and a Mac, look no further.

Very easy to use and fast enough so that I registered it after my first sync (An episode of 'South Park). This was the direct opposite on another piece of software purporting to do the same which never opened, I got no technical support for and which I for some reason paid for.

Better yet try PSPware. From their own site: "Take a movie, add it to PSPWare's movies section and PSPWare will automatically convert and optimize it for your PSP's screen. You can swap movies with a single click, making it super practical!"

I have installed PSPware and am a little "confused"... On one end, this is a terrific application, wel integrated in the OSX environment, and providing good services. However, I will personnaly wait for some items to be implemented before buying it (I convert my movies with ffmpeg, and put the reste by hand for now).. Basicaly, the PSP is amazing, however the limited formats is a pain :) Why would not PSPWare does with music and Photos what it does for Video. 1) As a mac User, most of my music files are encoded in AAC... PSPWare should reencode in MP3 when syncing... 2) My Iphoto is used to store my raw images, therefore most of my images are 2-3megs... PSPWare should resize to something around 500pix... Without those items, the pain of re-encoding AAC and resizing my images is such that doing the rest by hand is not an issue (after 20 minutes of work, I can add an extra 2 minutes :) PSPWare is excellent, however I would really like to see it being an integrated syncing software. Keep it up guys !

I made the jaws drop at the local game store because I was the first person they had seen with movie trailers, music, games saves and photos on their PSP. Paid the $10 fee before I even picked up my PSP last week. Well worth the money. Solid with constant use! A must have for mac/PSP owners. One thing though... it will make you want a larger memory card! ;)

Very good software, worked right off the bat with no problems. 4:3 aspect ratio movies that are converted do get "squished" a little, however this is hardly noticable. Overall a very good product. A plus would be integration with the PSP's Wi-Fi capabilities, like wireless updates of files, rather than just the PSP itself.

This software includes binaries for MP4PSP/altShiiva, FFmpeg and others. Not to mention that it's a bad habit to do so without giving proper credit, it's also very much illegal if you haven't paid your MPEG licensing fees. At least this application seems slightly better than it's horrible REALbasic developed competitor...
